Notebook: Bulls 89, Pacers 77


Kent McDill, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Mar 25, 2014 12:46 AM - Updated Tue Mar 25, 2014 12:46 AM

THE FACT: The Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers, possible second-round playoff opponents, split four games this season with each team winning twice at home. In each case the difference was at least 10 points.

THE LEAD: In an emotional contest between the two best defensive teams in the league, the host Bulls topped the Pacers 89-77 Monday at the United Center. Taj Gibson led the Bulls (40-31) with 23 points and Kirk Hinrich added 18 points and several key defensive plays. Paul George led the Pacers (51-20) with 21 points but was 8-for-22 from the field.

THE FACTS II: The halftime score was 34-33 in favor of the Pacers as neither team shot better than 35 percent. Then the Bulls hit nine of their first 11 shots in the third quarter and went on a 12-0 run to take control of the game.

QUOTABLE: "I was feeding off of Joakim. It's a part of the game when you play a rival. I was just having fun."
-- Taj Gibson talking about the emotion he showed after several second-half baskets.

QUOTABLE II: "Taj was a monster."
-- Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau

THE STAT: The Pacers have scored 71 and 77 in their last two games, both losses on the road. They have lost three straight on the road and six of their last eight.

THE STAT II: Joakim Noah of the Bulls had 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four steals and three blocked shots in 35 minutes of play.

THE STAT III: The Bulls had 22 assists on 35 baskets, while the Pacers had just 11 assists on 27 baskets.

TURNING POINT: The Bulls took the game's first double-digit lead in that early third quarter run, then kept the Pacers from getting closer than five the rest of the game. In the fourth quarter, the Pacers got to within six points three times and the Bulls turned them back each time.

HOT: Hinrich went 7-for-13 from the field, hitting from outside, and made a pair of 3s, while committing just one turnover in 27 minutes as the starting point guard for the Bulls. George Hill was the only Pacer hitting his shot as he went 6-for-10 from the field in 39 minutes.

NOT: Besides George's bad shooting night, David West was 4-for-12 from the field, Roy Hibbert was 0-for-5 and Lance Stephenson was 3-for-9.

QUOTABLE III: "They front the post. We were not sharp with our post feeding tonight. Roy had trouble positioning his feet. Against a team like this you are going to have a night like tonight."
-- Indiana coach Frank Vogel

GOOD MOVE: The Bulls missed their first seven shots of the game but trailed just 7-0 when Noah hit the Bulls' first basket with 7:52 left in the first quarter. The Bulls tied the game at 9-9 and the rest of the half was a battle.

BAD MOVE: Bulls guard Jimmy Butler, who had played 45 minutes or more in each of the last four Bulls games, got into foul trouble in both the first and second quarter and played just 8:30 of the first half. He played the entire second half and finished with 12 points, five rebounds three assists and just three fouls.

ROOKIE WATCH: When Butler got into foul trouble, Tony Snell came in and ended up with 18 minutes played but missed all six shots he took, including three 3-pointers. But he played strong defense against George in Butler's absence.

NOTABLE: On Sunday, Indiana assistant coach Popeye Jones got to see his son play hockey in Chicago, as Seth Jones suited up for the Nashville Predators in a game against the Blackhawks. ... Tthe Bulls missed their first seven shots and trailed 7-0 before Noah put them on the board with eight minutes left in the first quarter. ... After making just four baskets in the first quarter against Philadelphia Saturday, the Bulls had just six baskets in the first quarter against the Pacers on Monday. ... Indiana would have sealed the Central Division title with a win, and that would have been their second in a row... the Bulls again move into a virtual tie with Toronto for the third spot in the Eastern Conference playoff standings.

UP NEXT: For the Bulls, Friday vs. Portland, Sunday @ Boston, Monday vs. Boston. For the Pacers, Wednesday vs. Miami, Friday @ Washington, Sunday @ Cleveland.
